Robbers Busted After Sticking Up 2 Convenience Stores

The robbers stole cash and cigarettes from a 7-Eleven and Royal Farms store on the same night.

A pair of robbers is behind bars after knocking off two North Baltimore convenience stores in North Baltimore.

According to police, after 10- p.m. Feb. 7, the robbers targeted the 7-Eleven, located 630 W. 33rd Street. The robbers walked into the store and one of them pointed a handgun and demanded an employee open the safe.

Another robber then went behind the counter and stole cigarettes and cash from the register. After that both of the thieves ran out of the store.

Then, just after 11 p.m., the same burglars barged into the Royal Farms store, located at 1119 W. 41st Street, again armed with a gun.

One of the robbers announced: "Everything in the store is free. Get out this is a robbery."

The customers ran out of the store, and the robbers again helped themselves to cigarettes and cash from the register.

Following this incident both men were found and arrested, according to police.

Baltimore police were unable to provide details about the robbers or the circumstances of their arrests, despite multiple requests for the information by a reporter.

How many bets that these who were caught using a firearm in the commission of a crime will not be charges and or convicted of that use of a firearm? We have seen it over and over and over the Nolle Prosses and stets used far too often. Second part of the bet, any takers, that one or both have been arrested before and have at least one Nolle Pros or stet on their Judicial website page? Any takers? Anyone wonder why we continue to allow ourselves to be victims of the judicial system?

It's time for folks who work at these stores to be armed...someone will think twice about robbing them if they know the clerk keeps a loaded shotgun under the counter.

Right, because you want a clerk making minimum wage getting into a gun battle in a busy store. What could possibly go wrong?

Don't agree with Mar Jo there's a high chance the store owner will get killed and the handgun taken. Cameras are good and there should be some kind of button you step on or push to contact police.
